Read an article titled Audit to focus next on privately owned property to find out how the government is planning to embark on the second phase of its land audit, aimed at identifying who owns the 79% of privately owned land in SA.

Read a full story on Industrial space close to OR Tambo International Airport selling well.

According to Bill Rawson, Chairman of the Rawson Property Group, "The time has come to opt for a lower priced home if you wish to get onto the home owning bandwagon". Continue reading this article below.

In an article titled Ensure exclusive use area corresponds with plan or rules, learn how property management company, IHFM, dealt with an incident that occured in JHB's sectional title complex.

On our Focus On section this week, we take a closer look at Randfontein, a town that – similarly to Johannesburg and other Gauteng‘s well established towns - owes its origins to the Witwatersrand Gold Rush in the late 1800's.

Enjoy!
